Gayle is currently employed by Stewart Title Guaranty Company as vice president, associate senior underwriter.  She is an attorney admitted to practice in Massachusetts and a member of the Massachusetts Bar Association.  She also serves in a business development capacity for the Stewart's Boston office.  Gayle underwrites and closes local and national commercial real estate transactions with a strong focus on complex, multi-site, multi-state portfolio transactions with high liability amounts insured through Stewart Title Guaranty Company.  Because Gayle’s projects are national in scope, she works with offices throughout the United States and is familiar with local laws and customs, which allows her to be an effective liaison between her clients and the local office.  This is an extremely important and necessary skill in the national title insurance industry, as Gayle is the single point of contact for all her transactions and the client relies on her expertise and her accurate responses throughout the course of their business transaction.  Gayle has national underwriting authority for her transactions.  In addition to underwriting, Gayle also serves in the role of business development and markets the benefits of Stewart Title Guaranty Company and the services offered by Stewart National Title Services in order to increase market share and revenues.

In addition to her job duties with Stewart Title Guaranty Company, has been recognized as an exemplary leader in New England Women in Real Estate (NEWiRE), the New England chapter of Commercial Real Estate Women (CREW).  In June 2011, Gayle was selected to sit on the board of directors of NEWiRE and currently serves as clerk.  In April, Gayle was unanimously voted by the board of directors to be the 2013-2014 President of NEWiRE.  Gayle also serves as a Chairwoman on the NEWiRE Membership and Charity Golf Committees.  In Gayle’s free time, when she is not focused on the real estate industry, she sits on the board of directors of the Junior League of Boston (JL Boston) as its director of nominating.  Gayle has been a member of the JL Boston for seven years and has held a leadership role for the past five years.
